Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • No pets allowed

about 1¼ miles from Stoke Gabriel, on the same estate as C618, a boathouse built in 1760 as a bathing house in one of the most secluded, private, romantic settings in south Devon. For that privacy you walk 600 yards down a gentle valley, over fields and through woods, except on arrival/departure when you will be taken by 4x4 vehicle (winter weather permitting). The boathouse, with thick woods behind, is on the water's edge where the Dart meanders between Stoke Gabriel and Dittisham and is surrounded by a wide, covered balcony. Much birdlife, fishing/boating. The only sounds are lapping water and wind in the trees. Inside, extremely beautiful and comfortable. A haven from almost everything. Outside stairs to balcony and front door. Hall to lovely, large, light (water reflecting on the ceiling), oak-floored living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, TV/DVD) with fireplace (woodburner), dining table for 4 (window seat) and floor-to-ceiling French windows stretching the width of the boathouse; these fold back on themselves, the room opening to the balcony (furniture); downstairs shower-room (suite). Upstairs, two bedrooms, both carpeted, beams, ceilings to the apex – the master double (6' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite plus power-shower) and French windows to small balcony; and a pretty twin. Washer-drier and freezer. Don't forget your torch - and binoculars. A marvellous, unique, magical place.

The West Country region

The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved – sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.

Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton's long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth's beach and Salcombe's location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don't need to be brash; Bigbury's huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.

Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area's heart; Plymouth – the West Country's biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) – is on the area's edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.

Stoke Gabriel

Stoke Gabriel: pretty and beautifully situated village (three pubs, PO, shops, restaurant, medieval church) sloping to a little quay (good crabbing) and creek (boats) off the river Dart estuary. Sandy beaches at Torbay, and Totnes (attractive old town on the Dart), each 4 miles. Brixham, good golf (Churston) and car ferry to Dartmouth (town), 5 miles.
